SFA officials are under the spotlight. It’s not of Celtic’s doing but of those who seek to undermine Celtic this season and make sure we don’t get any more favourable decisions.
The meltdown to a marginal offside goal that’s still being debated has been surreal at times. We have had so many hacks come out in the press and moan about Kyogo’s goal, the same hacks who said nothing when the Ibrox club were afforded a draw thanks to a non-penalty being given to the Govan club earlier in the season. Also, the same hacks who aren’t really bothered or whipping up a storm about the potential leg break Calum Butcher perpetrated on David Turnbull at the weekend. We’ve also had the SFA chief of referees go on air to let us all know the goal shouldn’t have stood – again something we’ve not seen before.
Officials are bad if they’re in any way seen to give Celtic the benefit of the doubt, but it doesn’t even reach the top ten football stories when it’s across the city.
Some say it might be out of fear due to a resurgent Celtic. It’s no coincidence our star player is being attacked at every opportunity and our manager continues to be undermined.
That all being said, you’ll be delighted to know that John Beaton has been handed the League Cup final duties. You can absolutely bet your money if there are any marginal calls to make, they will go against Celtic after the media storm.
During the Dundee Utd game on Sunday, it was already at play with Celtic being pulled back several times even though they were in an onside position.
